    Hi, I have just migrated here from Multiply, and used an import tool. At the moment the wordpress site now displays the images, but they appear to be links directing to the multiply site. Is there any way to download the images into WordPress so that I have all the images with me rather than losing them when Multiply shuts down? I have imported nearly 2000 posts with even more images, so going through them 1-by-1 would take forever! Is there any quick/easy way to download the linked images into the media library and have them still correctly pointed to in the post? Please help! These are 7 years worth of precious memories!
    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is veganmeow.wordpress.com.

    Can any staff help look into this? The confusing part is that the images appear in my media library, all 2,055 of them. But all their names are “http://images.meowies.multiply.com/image/……” and their total size is 33.1Mb (which is really quite impossible given the number of pictures is 2,055). And they are all listed under the “Uploaded to” column as “unattached”.

    Additionally, when I look at the “posts” page in dashboard, very few posts seem to have “- Image” appended to the post title. What does this mean?

    Thank you to anyone of the staff who can help me on this.
